There is just something about seasoned meat and cheese rolled up in a warm tortilla shell covered in a creamy sauce that makes people happy. I mean come on, who, besides vegetarians wouldn't love these?! Just look at the browned bubbly cheese and creamy sauce. Yea, my mouth is watering thinking about how good these were. We need to have these again soon!
This is not a complicated dish at all, it's relatively simple, and it packs a flavorful punch that make it seem as if you were in the kitchen slaving over the stove for hours. That just simply isn't the case. Thankfully, because this mom, like many, don't have time for that!
